Mary passed away at 5pm today. I really can't believe that it has only been 4 1/2 hours....It seems like a lifetime since we were all in that crowded lounge, overflowing with family, waiting for everyone to say their goodbyes.

I can not believe the incredible pain that Shawns Mom is feeling right now. This week, she will bury her second child. How much can one woman take?

What a terribly sad time.

Death seems to bring out the worst in people - stay true to yourself. And support your Shawn.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have been very sick so I haven't been blogging the last few weeks...but I wanted to stop in and check to see how you have been doing. I just caught up on the last posts I have missed.

Please know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure that this time is very difficult for your family but I am also glad that Mary isn't suffering anymore.

She is smiling down on you all now...you have another angel on your side.

Please email or stop by my blog if there is anything at all I can do. I will be praying for you all.

She will have a long road ahead of her now. There is no pain as deep or sore or horrible than that of losing a child. None. But it seems when one life goes on to heaven, another gift is given later....yet, the pain never really ends....its to carry until we go on to be with them.
